Discovering Bangalore's roots with your own Private Guide!
This tour is about discovering the roots of Bangalore, walking down the very roads where the city came into existence 480 years ago! Here we will visit a few remains of historical sights where you get to learn interesting facts about the city's past.
First off we meet at the starting point and walk down to have some authentic south Indian breakfast, after which we set about exploring the place.
We witness the trade of fresh flowers in what is called Asia's largest wholesale market! An overwhelming sight at a place where battles were once fought between the Indian kings and the British.
Bangalore fort is the next stop, where we relive the glory of the past, after which we head off to visit a secret dungeon where the kings used to store ammunition in a hidden place underground! A visit to a temple which is associated with the kings is a must and here i'll tell you a lot more about Indian rituals and customs. Our walking tour will end at the summer palace of the kings.
We'll meet at the entrance gate of State Bank of India, main branch on KG road, and start the tour with an authentic south Indian breakfast.
